Power tube question, and live settings

Maybe I am crazy, but popping EL34 in the outside slots gave my amp and more rounded tone, not quite as spikey...that doesn’t seem normal?

My other question is for using 6l6 and 5881, should I put the 5881 on the outside or in?

Last question...I love my Mark IV, but have noticed at band and performance levels, I’m having trouble taming my brightness a bit (without using EQ, which works perfect, just wondering if there is any tube setups to help, or other suggestions). Thanks guys!

What you mean by, "I’m having trouble taking my brightness a bit "?

You want the amp to be a bit brighter?

If you mean that, I would try a Tung-Sol (RI) pre-amp tube in your V1 slot.

Sorry, it is supposed to say I’m having trouble taming brightness when playing live.
